Today we celebrated Spring Break in style. Oldies music in the court yard, bubbles, sunshine, carnival games, margarita’s, and cupcakes. What a busy day but it was so much fun to see all the smiles from staff and residents. Can’t wait until next Spring Break to see what we will come up with then.

Nothing says spring like a day at the races. Signature HeatlhCARE of Chillicothe was the guest of honor at the Columbus Motor Speedway on April 18.

Signature HealthCARE’s company-wide Spring Fling event in Ohio was a bit wet, but that did not dampen the spirit of celebration here at Signature HealthCARE of Chillicothe. We were invited to an intergenerational event at the Pickaway Ross Career and Technology Center.
While at the event our seniors were treated to manicures, pedicures, metal art, carpentry games, prizes, health screenings, a full salad and soup buffet. They received all the special care and attention they could ask for from some amazing students.
The students had activities of all kinds that included spring plants, clogging, music, dancing, and the like. “They really know how to treat a lady,” says Dorothy Pettit of Signature HealthCARE of CHillicothe.
Each senior there was given a student to be their own personal companion. Our Spring Fling event continued once we returned to the facility to enjoy a cookout and many games like corn hole, toss across, badminton, and volleyball.
